    The data would be pretty easy to look at and tell if they were accurate. you can figure out what tags were bought in what order and decifer which ones wouldn't have been purchased.

    No, I don’t know how the general public would qualify for a landowner tag. They are not landowners they would have to rewrite the bill anyway.

    I get what you are saying, but you kind of laid out how good us landowners already have it. How much more can we get before the general public starts screaming for there fair share? There are a lot of non land owning hunters who are 48 and older who would also love to able to hunt when the conditions are good. I find it really hard to oppose a floating tag for them but support it for myself.

    I purchased a land owners tag and 2 statewide tags this year and never killed a buck. With a floating tag, I would have had no reason to buy the statewide tags.

    Fair argument but in my situation I hunt other properties as well so I would buy them all anyway. So right here you have two opposite situations, it would be tough to calculate lost revenue but there would be some. In the big picture I think the delta would be relatively small- but data would be nice to see before a conclusion is made.

    There were over 32,000 either sex landowner tags purchased last year. It this keeps 1 extra $28 tag from being purchased for each, that is almost $900,000 not spent. That is obviously a high end, but gives you an idea of what we could be talking about.

    I personally love the idea of a floating landowner tag, but think it is a bad idea for the overall good of deer hunting in Iowa.

    Separating what is good for me and what is good for us, is often tough. My first reaction was "I love it". After some thinking about it, I am now against it.

    If it is about money, raise the any sex landowner tag to $50.

    If it is about population control make just the LO antlerless tags good for any season.

    Most land owners are farmers not deer managers. They would raise holy hell if they had to pay 28.50 to shoot brown rats on their ground.

    I'm getting tired and worn down by all these attempts to make everyone happy.

    I'm a bit confused on what became of this bill. I have heard it didn't make the funnel, I have heard that it was tabled/unfinished business, I heard that a "poison pill" amendment that would allow any NR with 350 acres to get full family tags was threatened to be offered.

    I'm still trying to track this down. I can't find it on the list of bills that were sent to the unfinished business calendar.

    Anybody else know where this is?

    If NR's can get archery tag every year, only Professional sports players and tv personalities will own high quality hunting land in Iowa.

    Forget archery tags. If they can get a floating tag or family tags prices will get nuts

    Remember, a "poison pill" amendment is something that is threated to be added to a bill to try and kill the bill. The pill is designed to make the bill so unpalatable to both sides of an issue that the bill goes away. I don't think the legislator that threatened the amendment would ever really want this proposal to actually happen. It kinda ranks up there with big boy/big girl politics.

    Having said that, I'm still trying to track down where the bill is in the legislative process. Lets not get wound up just yet.
